I use to eat sushi before I went plant-based, but never really thought about making a plant-based substitute. I found this recipe on instagram from Plant You, and my boyfriend made it for me one day. I was shocked! I could not believe that this was watermelon!! It was so flavorful and tasted nothing like fruit! We have made it before to eat as a side dish, or you can use it as a topping in a poke bowl or salad. The most recent time we made it, we used it in homemade sushi rolls. I can’t wait for you to try this!
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup rice vinegar
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp crushed nori
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- ½ lime squeezed
- Pinch of salt
- 6-8 cups watermelon cubed
1.) Mix the contents of your marinade including the soy sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes, maple syrup, sesame oil, lime and salt.
2.)Add the ingredients to a freezer bag with the watermelon, and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.
3.) Preheat the oven to 400F. Transfer the watermelon to a baking dish, and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 minutes, checking intermittently until it’s cooked to your liking.
4.)Enjoy with sesame seeds and rice, or in a nourish bowl.
